#MondayMotivation: It's time to reimagine your 'happily ever after' with these Disney inspired trends


We used to wear the faces of our favourite Disney characters on our chests all the time as youngins, but growing up dictated a different style trajectory for us, meaning we had to ditch Minnie for minis.

But what if I told you that you can incorporate elements of your childhood wardrobe and toy collection into your adult life again?

As the saying goes, "a trust measure of maturity is the ability to act childish." So take a page out of your favourite Disney story and do as designer labels such as Gucci and Moschino already have.

According to Business of Fashion, "Disney employs an extensive network of marketing magicians to dream up new tactics to keep the brand culturally relevant. Among the most effective: connecting content and commerce through emotional threads, open-sourcing characters, inclusivity, gamifying the brand experience, and using social media as a magic mirror." 

This probably explains why Disney memorabilia is all the rage right now, as street stylistas have been spotted donning the trend:

Try the Peter Pan collar if you prefer a more subtle approach to Disney trends.
